folks we managed to reach release number thirteen, the unlucky thirteen,
as we say in germany and probably in your country, too. that may be
differ from country to country.
but if we look at some sportsmen we will see that the connection between
number "13" and bad luck is doubtful:
first, basketball-player wilt "the stilt" chamberlain wore the number
thirteen throughout his whole career and he is the holder of 72 (!!!)
official nba records. amazing, isn't it?
second, american football quarterback dan marino played his whole career
with the miami dolphins in the nfl with the number thirteen on his back
and guess what, he is holding 17 nfl records and 31 miami dolphins
records. he is for sure one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history
of american football.
if looking at ice hockey crack mats sundin, it will be revealed that he
is playing with the number thirteen throughout his nhl career. he is
the first european player to be picked first overall in the entry draft
and he is the longest serving european captain of an nhl franchise. he
holds nearly every scoring record in toronto maple leafs history and
every scoring record for swedish players in nhl history.
another big man in american sports, baseball pro alex "a-rod" rodriguez
has been wearing the thirteen since he is playing for the new york
yankees. he is the holder of 12 major league records and he is still an
active player. he has the richest contract in baseball history and he is
the youngest player ever to hit 500 home runs. he can be considered as
one of the best all-around baseball players ever.
famous german soccer player gerd "bomber" mÃ¼ller always wore the
thirteen in international appearences and he is by far the best striker
in german football history. he holds records for most goals in
international appearances, most goals in german bundesliga and most
goals in european club games.
so the thirteen can not be that bad at all, hehe! and together with the
man called effect from poland, we bring you three different ways to
"surrender" all your shit ;)
